  2.2.x will be marked "stable" and "long term support", just like
1.1.x.  The 1.1.x releases will no longer be supported for *anything*.
2.0 was released 4 years ago.  There is no reason for anyone to be
running 1.x.

  People can submit patches to fix them.  Or, perhaps they can purchase
a support contract to help fund continuing development.

  What happened with 1.x and 2.x?
